The University accepts applications from qualified applicants from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Admissions standards are designed to identify students whose academic backgrounds indicate they are capable of successfully completing work at Georgia Southern University. (See Equal Opportunity Policy statement.)
Applications for admission may be submitted online at GeorgiaSouthern.edu/admissions. Applications must be submitted prior to the application deadline.
Normally, all applicants who have applied or updated their applications prior to the application deadline for a specific term will be considered for admission. However, the University reserves the right to stop accepting applications at any time. Therefore, students are encouraged to apply or update well in advance of the application deadline.
The University reserves the right to examine any applicant by the use of psychological, achievement, and aptitude tests. Each applicant must give evidence of good moral character, promise for growth and development, seriousness of purpose, and a sense of social responsibility.
The University reserves the right to require additional biographical data and/or an interview before the applicant is accepted or denied admission. If an interview is required, the applicant will be notified.
The final decision of acceptance or denial will be made by the Director of Admissions subject to the applicant’s right to appeal as provided in the policies of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
An applicant who chooses not to enroll for the semester accepted must notify the Office of Admissions to update the term of application.
Acceptance may be deferred until additional information is received. An applicant who updates the intended term of entry must meet admissions requirements for the new term. Applications remain on file and are eligible for update for two years.
